Jellyfish Review is accepting flash fiction submissions, so if you can flip us handle over teapot then we want to hear from you.

There are no hard-and-fast rules about what does and doesn’t work, but the following certainly go down well. In the past we said we liked beautiful things with stings, but maybe now it’s possible for us to refine that.

We like fun, we like sad, we like ugly, we like beautiful. But above all else, we like stories that feel insightful.

Please send your submissions to

Feel free to include a short bio or covering letter with your submission.

We probably won’t open attachments, so make sure your piece is pasted into the body of the email.

Maximum word length: 1000 words


As of our second birthday, we are also welcoming CNF of up to 1000 words and essays on any topic of up to 2000 words. Please use the words CNF or Essay in your subject line.




At Jellyfish Review we ask for first publication rights and the right to display the work for the duration of the journal. Copyright remains with the writer in all cases. If your work is subsequently reprinted elsewhere, please acknowledge Jellyfish Review as the site of first publication. Please note that at present, we are unable to pay our contributors.

And by the way, simsubs are ok, previously pubbed pieces are not, we don’t take poetry, but do take prose written by poets… and though we may offer a little positive feedback on things we liked and would be happy to see more of we rarely go into any detail on why a story isn’t selected.

Before posting, we edit stories for punctuation, spelling, grammar and the like. Our response time is very fast, so if you haven’t heard back from us within a week please feel free to query.
